Inkscapin'

I took a screenshot of Google Maps, imported into Inkscape. Traced the rail line with Bezier curves, then added Underground-style markers for the stations. Rectangle for the scale, text labels for scale and stations, and then a title. Mess around in the XML documentation to remove a couple problematic empty textboxes... and here we have a brand-new shiny vector graphic of the Ashmont-Mattapan High Speed Line.

(This is a PNG version so I can use it on Blogger; click on the image to go to the original infinitely-scalable vector version.)
